Wow, I have so many fovorite app's..... I rarely use my laptop anymore & haven't watched more than two hours of T.V. since I got my Transformer Prime, which is my first tablet. I'm a big tech junkie & avid reader who just got into android not quite a year ago, so it's become an information paradise for me to glue my eyes to for a few hours every evening while I wind down from rough day at work.

1) Google Currents- Such a vast amount of interesting periodicals to browse through, and a selection that is broad enough to spend hours flicking through.

2) ADownloader- The best torrent downloader for android in my opinion. I mostly use it for movie night w/ the Wife, & audio books which I like to listen to as I drift off to sleep. (Tip- If your torrent is downloading slow, try opening the browser & loading a couple of heavy web pages. This seems to expand the bandwidth & at least double their speed.)

3) Tunein Radio- So many stations from around the world, but I generally listen to the podcasts.

Honorable mentions- Music Paradise, YouTube(probably my Fav, but too obvious for the top 3), Distro by Engadget, Mybidder auction sniper for ebay, Craigslist HD, Overskreen Browser, Allrecipes, & Tablet CPU usage...

Holy Smokes.... I could go on forever here!!!

I don't get it - please explain. Don't I need paid cable to make this work?

Chrome works surprisingly well
Perfect keyboard free works well for the split keyboard
Angry birds space keeps you busy and looks good on the big screen



Got any solutions for a transparent navigation bar?

How do you access cable internet on Prime?

My top 3
1: PS Touch (i really love the ui and the snappyness of the effects)

2: Engadget Distro (Awesome for gadget-news reading)

3: OneCast Podcast (Smooth podcasting agent, the transparent background is awesome, but it's only in portrait)

Had to make another post because so much has changed

1. Gesture Control - nothing like it. 4 finger pinch: Home button, 4 finger expand: Multitask, 3 finger swipe: Back, 2 finger swipe down from the top bezel: screen off! Thats just my setup its fully customizable and works really really well. It makes using a Tablet a complete new experience. Btw you can even hide the lower statusbar with the app.

2. Google Currents - just got released a few weeks ago in Europe, already alot of german content as well. Now i laugh at people that read newspapers. The biggest newspaper in my country (NZZ) is already on Currents and completely free Thats exactly why i chose Android!

3. USB/BT Joystick Center - I have an iControlPad a portable bluetooth gamepad and with this app i can now play EVERY game with it. It allows you to map touch input to the analog nubs/buttons of almost any gamepad out there. Works really well and i already played through MC3 with it. Check it out.

.

A feature of Gesture control that people are not aware of is that it supports gestures using the dock touchpad too! just like in a laptop touchpad. It supports single and two finger gestures from the trackpad just as it would from the touch screen. Support is still in beta ( only one of touchpad or touchscreen can respond to gestures and you have to select that option in the advanced settings). But this feature in itself is awesome.

Sadly, it has been removed from the Play Store, due to a cease and desist order. :(
